London-based fashion house self-portrait today reveals a preview of its Spring/Summer 2023 collection through a set of images and videos, starring Gigi Hadid shot by British photographer Tyrone Lebon. The preview captures the sensuality of the inspiration for the Spring/Summer 2023 collection captured against New York’s urban and electric backdrop.
We wanted to preview our new collection in an interesting way – taking the collection to the streets rather than on the runway, and seeing them in a natural and urban setting which feels more connected to us as a House and to our customers. Gigi really captures the electricity of these new designs against New York City’s vibrant backdrop. She and Tyrone Lebon formed a magical partnership in bringing the spirit and sensibility of our brand to life for this special preview.Han Chong, self-portrait Founder and Creative Director
One of the things I love most about my job is the opportunity to build creative relationships. Collaborating with Han and the self-portrait team was so much fun and felt familiar in all the right ways.Gigi Hadid, supermodel
